RUFC - Millmoor is 'not an option'

Rotherham United will not be moving back to Millmoor even though the rumour mongers, of late, have been saying we will.

Chairman, Tony Stewart, has told David Beddows of The Advertiser, 'Millmoor has never been an option - it's not even on the back burner.'

A few months ago Mr Stewart said that the club would not return to Millmoor while he was in charge and he still stands by that, although he did say, 'you never say never.'

Millmoor was the Millers' home for more than one hundred years but discussions between the Booth family, who own Millmoor and Mr Stewart when he first took over the club, didn't go well which, as we know, ended up in the club being moved lock, stock and barrel to Don Valley just before the start of last season.

With the Football League saying we HAVE to be back in Rotherham for the 2012/13 season and nothing regarding a new ground coming out of the club, it had been rumoured that we would probably be moving back to Millmoor as a temporary measure. But in today's Advertiser, Mr Stewart says, 'I have never had an approach from the Booth family and we have not approached them. And, bearing in mind the negotiations we had before, then if we were to go back to Millmoor, circumstances would have to alter.'
